    Did you check to see if it is contacting something in the steering, or suspension, or inner fender wells? That is were I would start on the knocking. If it is an axle ujoint, then you have to remove everything except the knuckle like a Chevy. (I think) Not sure because of the TTB.

    I would check everything possible before ripping into the axle assembly to get to the axle joint.

    Ohhhh TTB <shudder> If it isn't something like wheel bearings or a weight on a rim hitting a tie rod I recomend buring it and collecting the insurance money and buying a new truck. That TTB stuff is a pain in the butt to work on.

    Changing the axel joint in a bronco with TTB is the same as a Chev except you dont have to take the front cover off the diff and pull the C clips.
    All you have to do is. Pull the rotor,hub,and spindle and the axel will slide right out. The TTB front is a D44 without axel tubes so everything comes apart the same way.
    You should be able to get the U joints at most auto parts stores or a drive line shop

    Front axles don't have c clips on Chevy's do they? All the spare axle shafts I have bought have no provision for a c-clip. From what I understood they were full floating design. Rear 10 bolts have c-clips.
